When I open a folder of images, it no longer displays thumbnail previews of the images

original title: thumbnails not showing upward

For some reason any when I open a folder of images, it no longer displays thumbnail previews of the images. Instead, I get the generic pictures of a red & yellow flower or a lake and mountains. I did research online and found the problem, which was "Always show icons, never thumbnails" was checked in the control PANEL, OPTIONS of FOLDERS, thenVIEW. Once I found the problem, I disabled it and clicked on apply. But nothing. I restarted and it still does not display thumbnail previews. Last night for some reason, he began to build, but then stopped. So, although the "always show icons, never thumbnails" setting is not checked, it will still not display thumbnails. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you do a system restore and choose a date where you did NOT have this problem as your restore point?

System Restore:
Start button > Search box, type system restore > press the Enter key > uac prompt > click on choose a different restore point > next > select dates as your restore point, until the click > next > finish
To sit and wait. The machine restarts when it's done.

Note: In most cases, do it in safe mode system restore is more preferable.
Here's how to get safe mode:

Shut down your computer > turn it back on and immediately and repeatedly tab key F8 until you see a black and white screen. The top/down arrow and select Safe Mode.

    Hi kathyd,.

    ·        You did changes to the computer before this problem started?

    Since we do not know what is causing this problem, I'd suggest unanimous the event viewer on your computer and check the details in the window logs messages/error codes important related to the question, during the time where this problem occurs and after return.

    Event logs can help you identify and diagnose the source of current system problems or help you predict potential system problems.

    Access the link below to learn how to view and manage the event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP

    http://www.Microsoft.com/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/proddocs/en-us/event_overview_01.mspx?mfr=true

    You can try to start both computers in safe mode and check if it can open the folder where the MPEG 2 files are stored and if windows Explorer crashes. To boot to the desktop in safe mode keep tapping key F8 during restart. Once you see the option to start in safe mode select and press to enter.

  • Why the tree in Explorer drop down when you open a folder in Windows 7?

    I don't know what kind of joke someone plays, but it is not . I have already most likely to get surgery on both of my hands soon for carpal syndrome severe. For each round of a mouse wheel and all the clicks that I have to endure it's useless, my pain and my symptoms are growing more intense. I have 7 hard drives in my computer. I have search and locate and organize and delete and add files of ALL TIME. I'm in the Explorer of ALL TIME. It is deplorable that I had XP Pro because of threats of compliant. XP has at least had an Explorer who worked perfectly. Now of having to learn a new platform (Windows 7) and I am forced to support a program who has a child of 12 years could have better designed! How long still is * going to go? I discovered only recently that Explorer in Windows 7 has a tree that falls to the bottom of the page fricking every time that a file is opened, so I am forced to dive to the bottom of the page to locate the folder. So I started the research on the forums to see if I was losing my mind and just something wrong. I read messages from people complaining about this BS in 2007. Why is that, after 4 years this perverted arrogant control problem still exists?

    This is the Bug of scrolling in the left pane.

    See the bottom of this post for help with the left pane scroll bug using Classic shell.

    Say you want Microsoft fixed it by voting on the Microsoft Connect Web site:

    http://connect.Microsoft.com/WindowsServerFeedback/feedback/details/621426/bug-when-expanding-folders-in-Explorer-Server-2008-R2-and-Windows-7

    Look at the left pane scrolling bug:

    This illustrates a way to reproduce it, by clicking on the triangle to expand a folder, that you are currently viewing as it reproduces.

    Son of left pane scroll Bug:

    1 bug: Windows Explorer develops bad records, jumping the folder develop you to the bottom of the navigation pane

    2 tree of Windows explore expands downstairs, not upstairs like it used to be

    3. Windows Explorer navigation pane problem

    4. Explorer moves the folder selected to the bottom of the folder list. How can I stop this?

    5. behavior of strange folder in the left pane of Windows Explorer

    FIX THE BUG IN 10 MINUTES:

    The classic interface mainly eliminates the bug in Windows Explorer, but it will still exist in the open/save dialog boxes.

    Pane left scrolling bug (and other corrections):

    Using the classic interface to restore functionality of Windows Explorer

    After you have installed the free Classic Shell , you can customize Windows Explorer more closely to how you want it, the quote below is just a way to do it. Click here to see some of the options that you can customize, and here is the FAQ page for the classic interface.

    A solution that works for the restoration of some features.

    1) install the free Classic shell.  It's very customizable and works like a mod for Windows Explorer rather than a full blown replacement. You don't need to install the classic Start Menu option, but you can if you wish.
    2) restart the computer.


    3) launch Windows Explorer (Start - computer) and turn on "Always show Menus" (organize - Layout - check menu bar). It's just for the configuration, you can disable it again later if you wish.
    4) right click on the menu bar and turn on the 'Classic Explorer Bar.' This adds a series of icons for cut/copy/paste in Explorer. Basically, it also adds the "Configuration" icon
    5) go in the configuration and from there, you can change things to your heart's content. To kill the horrible record-jumping 7 Windows, place you Vista in 'Style Navigation pane. You can even hit back to XP mode if you want (this adds lines to the tree of folders and adds a classic icon "+" for the expansion of folders). The Windows Vista folder display style looks about the same as the view from Windows 7, but it gets rid of the horrible blow.
    6) adjust other settings you want.

    After that, you can activate the toolbar and menus walk back to explore if you wish. Explorer Windows seems largely the same, but folders is no longer jumping around.  Vote for Microsoft to fix this bug.

    Now if only MS allows to code correctly so that we don't have to mess with third-party applications to get Windows actually works...

    You probably have too much in your Inbox.

    1. Move messages that you see in the user created folders.
    2. OE backup.
    3. Close and open OE.
    4. Compact your folders.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: file | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    Compress your OE folders:
    http://www.insideoe.com/files/maintain.htm#compact

    6: Uncheck work offline and make a manual send/receive.

    What now? If you still have questions, after return before doing anything else.

    *********************************

    General precautions for Outlook Express:

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

    Information on the maximum size of the .dbx files that are used by Outlook Express:
    http://support.Microsoft.com/?kbid=903095

    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the processors and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:
    http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

    And backup often.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as
    necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.
